The collections are really complete, start from ATM machines, calculators, money, stamps, everything! It's a great place to study, taking photos, or just walking around. Bring your kids along, they'll love it!

I was hesitant to visit based on the name of the museum, but was pleasantly surprised, and loved learning more of the history of Indonesia. Very nice.

This is a well done museum in Jakarta. It is located nearby Kota Tua, parking might be a challenge but the display and lighting is very well done.
